Personal Quote:

[from the 1940s] Why is it that I'm not able to get the roles they give Clark Gable? They always say, "You have no name. But when you have one, come again." By that time I'll be old and stiff, A kind of poor man's Aubrey Smith.


He has appeared in two films that have been selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant: How Green Was My Valley (1941) and Now, Voyager (1942). See more »
